I used this team a lot, sometimes it works perfectly, and sometimes it works not as good. Also, Should I replace Umbreon with a sweeper or should I keep the Sweeper/Sweeper/Wall/wall combination?

I like full team questions, they are like a test :D Also, I like to find realistic Poke-pics that people draw, they are pretty cool.

Crobat (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Taunt
- U-turn
- Brave Bird
- Roost
I love the Lead / Scout Crobat. This is pretty similar to the one I used in Gen IV, the only thing I would change is the item: Leftovers can be replaced by either Black Sludge (essentially the same thing, except for Poison types, and it hurts trickers). I prefer Focus Sash, it will ensure you land a taunt, and get to scout even against the ever-present Aerodactyl leads. Besides, Roost can recover, and only priority is going to outspeed this thing.

Rotom-H @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Trick
- Overheat
- Volt Switch
- Hidden Power [Ice]
Again, this thing is pretty close to what I use. I would suggest T-Bolt instead of Volt Switch, as you already have a scout, but it is really up to you.

Registeel @ Leftovers
Trait: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SDef / 252 Def
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Seismic Toss
- Stealth Rock
- Toxic
- Protect
I like this as well, it is incredibly bulky, and works well as a staller. I personally prefer to make both defensive stats about equal, so I only need one staller, but I see the combo with Umbreon. The only problem I see with that, is both are toxic stallers, this can pose problems when coming into contact with Magic Guard, Immunity, Steel types, Poison types, or Poison Heal, all of which are fairly common. Luckily you have Seismic Toss, but there are some bulky Clefables with diverse pools using various status attacks and healing techniques. Another problem is Life Orb Nidoking, it hits both (Regi and Umbreon) for super-effective damage (Earth Power + Focus Blast), so watch out for that. If you are planning on removing Umbreon, try the following EV spread, it will make it a dual staller:
EVs: 252 HP / 60 Def / 196 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

Gallade (M) @ Expert Belt / Life Orb
Trait: Steadfast
EVs: 96 HP / 240 Atk / 148 Def / 24 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Psycho Cut
- Close Combat / Drain Punch
- Night Slash / Shadow Sneak
- Thunder Wave / Bulk Up
I find Gallade better as a Scarfer (as predictable as that is...) or as this set shows, an Expert Belt or Life Orb sweeper. This set is preference based, either recovery or Suicide sweeper. I prefer the former, as it doesn't have the speed for a suicide sweeper. Drain punch hits hard and recovers (better with Expert Belt), CC hits harder, but it is self-sacrificing (Life Orb set). Psycho Cut is Stab + coverage + high crit ratio, pretty self explanatory. The next slot is all preference, power or priority? Everything is hit neutral with either, N-Slash is another high crit ratio, while Sneak has priority with less power. Thunder Wave lowers speed, and has the para-hax chance, while Bulk Up works well in combo with Drain Punch to make this thing tough to take down (I prefer Bulk Up).

Umbreon (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Wish
- Heal Bell
- Payback
- Toxic
I like Umbreon allot, but I mentioned earlier the problems with the duo T-stallers. I like how this is more of a cleric though. To be honest, I can't think of anything to change, I wish it could learn Will-O-Wisp... I could suggest Taunt over Heal Bell, as your pokemon tend to set up, so switching out to Heal bell can often be detrimental, but a burn could cripple Gallade, so it is a double edged sword. If using Taunt, Payback is nearly guaranteed to do double damage, or Sucker Punch is also viable.

Azumarill (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Huge Power
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Aqua Jet
- Ice Punch
- Superpower
- Double-Edge
I love how gimmicky Azumarill is, it has pretty good coverage, but to be honest, this is really the only functional set, so nothing to change LoL.

As for the question about keeping Umbreon, it is really up to you, but both of your walls are weak to fighting, and both have similar functions, so I would remove one. I would throw on another cleric or dual screener. I think a Xatu would be a nice addition, it has Magic Bounce (stops sub-seeders and t-Stallers, as well as reflecting Taunt leads on a switch), it runs Wish, and it has dual screens if you want to use them, they will make your sweeper nigh unbeatable with bulk, power and coverage.
Try something like this:
Xatu (M) @ Light Clay
Trait: Magic Bounce
EVs: 120 HP / 136 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Psychic / Psyshock
- Wish
- Light Screen
- Reflect
Rough draft, but you get the idea it hits both screens quickly, has light clay, it can wish restore, and it bounces effects back at the opponent. It makes for a great annoyer, as well as being serious utility. Psychic stab hits both the poison type seeders I mentioned countering, as well as fighting type brick breakers.
